Diva US 19??, ex "Gizmo", From SA forum 2019: "in the late 90's a friend of mine bought a Farr 1/2 ton in SoCal and did a really nice resto on it.  Used to be called Gizmo, he re-named her Diva. When he was doing the bottom work, he asked me if he should remove the vestigial skeg and the IOR bumps. I said hell no.  Keep her in all her IOR glory! Double spreader in line rig with runners.  Diesel over the keel.  All Elliot Pattison sail wardrobe.  In breeze she was unbeatable.  There was another 1/2 ton called Off. This one was completely faired, no bumps, IIRC no skeg, and updated rudder.  No diesel, O/B on bracket.  We used to take great delight in saying we beat Off! Upwind in breeze, with a fully stacked rail, that boat pointed like a setter.  Downwind it drove like a dump truck.  But, it was a total weapon and we picked up a lot of pickle dishes for the owner.  He was and still is, also a very talented grower of the loco or Chernobyl as we called it.  Some of the most pungent safety meetings were held after racing!  After he sold, she was last seen rotting away in front of Cabrillo Yacht Club.  Shame really.";

2020 February, from Facebook: "I bought the Farr 920 that was in the US Watercraft bankruptcy auction a couple of years ago. I'm finally getting ready to splash it.  I'm looking to get some provenance on the boat/find previous owners.  I met a guy at the auction (Brian I believe) who had owned the boat previously, unfortunately I lost his number. It had also been subsequently owned by someone who worked at Hall Spars. Anyone got any info to share with me?"
